SDCC 2013 Interview – Mike Stackpole on World of Warcraft: Vol’jin, Shadows of the Horde

sdcc-2013-michael-stackpole-interview

Blizzplanet contributor Danny Perschonok interviewed Mike Stackpole to discuss his recent novel tie-in World of Warcraft: Vol’jin, Shadows of the Horde.

The interview contained a combination of questions submitted by Scrolls of Lore fans and Blizzplanet.

This interview is so exciting in many levels. Mike Stackpole answered questions for 22 minutes straight enhancing the reader’s perception of what transpired throughout Vol’jin’s journey and his experiences which shed away the old Vol’jin. He’s reborn. He experiences this new life from the point of view of the Shado-Pan and their philosophies, through the point of view of human Tyrathan, and must decide whether to take the temptation of glory for the Darkspear by joining the Zandalari or to choose his newfound friends.

Order World of Warcraft: Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde.

SDCC 2013 – Legendary Entertainment Duncan Jones Reveals Warcraft Film Teaser

legendary-pictures-logo-1280x629

Cesar (Blizzplanet-ES) informed me io9 broke the news that Legendary Entertainment director Duncan Jones has revealed a teaser trailer of the Warcraft Film. No one has been able to find a video as it took everyone by surprise.

Duncan Jones mentioned this is a “mood piece” of live action footage, and confirms the shooting of the film will begin early 2014. Some people describe the teaser “mood piece” as gritty and similar to “300″. On another note, Duncan Jones and Legendary invite fans to send questions about the Warcraft film at hashtag: #AskWarcraft

I will be diligently searching for the teaser trailer.

io9: “Holy crap, there was a big surprise at the Legendary/Warner Bros. panel just now. We saw the-first ever teaser for the World of Warcraft movie, in which a mighty armored warrior goes head-to-head with a huge green orc.” …

“And director Duncan Jones came out and told the crowd that he always wanted to make movies where “you delve into fantasy” — and this project is a dream come true, because he gets to create a whole world. And he announced that he starts filming in early 2014.” — source

 

On Thursday, July 18th – a fan asked Chris Metzen if Warcraft film info would be coming out on BlizzCon. Chris slowly looked at his watch hinting something was about to happen within a short time.

On Saturday, July 20th — Legendary Entertainment debuted a Warcraft film “mood piece” teaser of a human versus an orc. After the “mood piece”, Duncan Jones appeared on-stage and screams in a geeky-fashion revealing that the shooting of the Warcraft film is confirmed to be early 2014. Video below:

New Licensed Products Announced @ SDCC 2013

Blizzard Entertainment posted a lengthy update of the San Diego Comic Con Merchandise and the new reveals from licensed partners.

blizzard-logo-sdcc-2013

Video Update

Update July 19 11:55am EDT: The video of the panel was recorded. However, the videographer ran into technical issues. Some of the .MOV files uploaded to me were corrupted. I instructed him to .Zip each individual file instead before uploading them. I think I saw a similar problem with .MOV files a decade ago when I owned an Apple Mac. Afterwards, I’ll upload them to YouTube as MP4 H.264. No ETA at the moment. That’s nearly 4GB of .MOV files.

Today we had some exciting announcements to make for all of our franchises. Check out the news below!

Sideshow Collectibles

Sideshow revealed our newest statuette, StarCraft’s Kerrigan, Queen of Blades, sculpted by Mark Newman and Ray Villafane. Two versions of the statuette are being considered: the traditional Infested Queen of Blades AND Primal Kerrigan from Heart of the Swarm. She is on the same scale as our recently released Arthas Sideshow statue in terms of size. Preorders will start later this year.

We also announced the new 1/6-scale Raynor figure, also from StarCraft. This guy is hyper-articulated and has some epic armor as well: his terran marine suit has light mechanisms, chest cartridges that mimic the cold fusion effect, and LEDs accentuating the afterburner effects on his pack. Keep an eye out for preorders coming REALLY soon!

In addition, we showed off the first look at our biggest statue to date: the menacing and majestic Deathwing in grayscale. Check out that wingspan!

Attendees also got to see progress on the upcoming Diablo statue, including LED eyes that glow like the fires of Hell. This infernal beauty will be shipping in November. (We take no responsibility for souls consumed by this incredibly detailed work of art.)

Funko

Announced as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, this Shadow Illidan Funko vinyl figure (limited quantities available at the show) is part of a new line of Blizzard-themed Funko toys hitting stores in September. Are you prepared?

Insight Editions

Along with epic books, you can buy World of Warcraft- and Diablo-themed stationary and poster books now over at Insight Editions. What better way to protect your notes than with Sindragosa or Tyrael?

And as we teased previously, the Diablo III: Book of Tyrael is coming this October!

Snow Fight

Blizzard’s own Chris Metzen and Wei Wang are collaborating on a World of Warcraft-themed children’s book, due to premiere at BlizzCon this year. This book is sure to warm even the Lich King’s heart.

NECA

Last but not certainly not least, we’re excited to be working with Ncca on a new Diablo action figure! Stay tuned for more information on its release.
